Missouri's Porter one of top forwards in draft (6/19/18)Marvin Bagley III dominated at Duke, while fellow freshman Michael Porter Jr. barely saw action at Missouri due to injury. Yet they'll likely be the first forwards to hear their names called during Thursday's draft. Bagley is a possible No. 1 overall pick and double-double machine with a long frame. But many considered Porter to be the top NBA prospect in last year's class as he works to prove he's past the back injury that required surgery and limited his college career to just three games...

Chiefs QB Mahomes jumping head first into Kansas City life (6/14/18)INDEPENDENCE, Mo. -- Patrick Mahomes II could have spent his offseason just about anywhere, back home in Texas perhaps, or maybe even some exotic locale befitting a 20-something starting quarterback in the NFL.

Miles Mikolas improves to 7-1 as St. Louis beats Marlins (6/8/18)ST. LOUIS -- Miles Mikolas was prepared to change jerseys -- but he was pitching too well to pull the trigger.

Cardinals rookie Jordan Hicks lighting up radar guns (6/5/18)Jordan Hicks can't explain where the gas comes from. If he's being honest, the St. Louis Cardinals rookie flamethrower doesn't really want to. Best not to overthink it. So the 21-year-old reliever steps on the rubber and lets his mind go blank before beginning a delivery that looks like it could fit in a phone booth. No long levers. No exaggerated windup. Just straight fire -- stuff that makes the readout from the radar gun look like a misprint...
